GREENVILLE – The City of Greenville Fire Department would like to remind residents of the proper means to safely and legally dispose of yard waste and trash without burning it. Ohio Administrative Code Chapter 3745-19 and the Ohio Fire Code offers strict guidelines regarding open burning; citizens should be aware that burning limbs, brush, yard waste, trash, and other debris is prohibited in the City of Greenville.
As the street department has continued its limb/brush removal service, residents are advised of their following options:
* The City of Greenville Street Department will pick up tree limbs and brush on Fridays of each week. Contact the street department to schedule a pick up at 548-2215.
* Rumpke will haul away brush that is placed in a biodegradable (paper) yard waste bag (available at most stores) and will haul away any 32 gallon trash container, if a yard waste sticker is attached.
Property owners may also contact a tree trimming contractor to have brush chipped or shredded and disposed of.
